A powerful trailer has been released for Peter Landesman’s Parkland, a ensemble cast-driven film about the chaotic day of JFK’s assassination and the events surrounding the Parkland Memorial Hospital where the President was brought. This is Landesman’s feature film debut and given the intensity of the subject matter, this film will be one to watch when it debuts at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival. Coincidentally, 2013 is the 50th anniversary of JFK’s death.
The film stars Billy Bob Thornton, Zac Efron, Marcia Gay Harden, Jacki Weaver, James Badge Dale, Jackie Earle Haley, Ron Livingston, Colin Hanks, Tom Welling, Jeremy Strong, and David Harbour. It can be seen at TIFF, the Venice Film Festival and a limited theatre release later this year.
PARKLAND recounts the dramatic true story of the chaotic events that occurred at Parkland Hospital in Dallas on the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated on November 22nd 1963.
